Mental Health First Aider

By Community, Mental Health, News, PSHE, Safeguarding

Introducing our first Mental Health First Aider. Last week, Mr Thompson completed a two day course learning how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. He is the first of many staff to complete this training.

At St Alban’s we support children’s mental health through teaching them the skills they need to recognise and deal with their emotions, and help those with difficulties get the support they need.

If you would like any further information about how we support children’s mental health, then please get in touch.

Thank you,

Mrs Gurner

Child Exploitation (CSE)

This week is Safeguarding Awareness Week and, following a request from the community, Rotherham LEA have produced a short awareness session on how people can spot the signs of Child Exploitation.

The session provides an overview of child exploitation, some of the signs you may see where you live or work and how you can respond confidently to concerns. The video lasts for 15 minutes and can be viewed using the link below.

 

Safeguarding is everyones responsibility.

Anti-Bullying Policy

Today in collective worship, house leaders presented our Anti-Bully Policy to the children. They were TRULY FABULOUS! This policy clearly explains exactly what children need to do if they experience bullying. A copy can be found in classrooms and on our school website.

Remember bullying is… Several Times On Purpose (STOP).

I will attach a copy of the policy in my next post.

Thank you,

Y6 Road Safety

By PSHE, Year 6

Y6 had a visitor to school to talk about Road Safety.  The children recapped on what had been previously learnt at Crucial Crew and related this to moving on to secondary school.

The children learned about the App What3Words and now understand that this is a very useful app for finding a persons location in an emergency.

Fire Fighters visit Year 1

By Geography, PSHE, Visits, Year 1

Year 1 had a visit from the Fire service to support our learning.  Children were very excited and loved that the fire engine came up the drive flashing its lights and sirens.  We learnt about the different parts and equipment a fire engine has, sat inside the cab and got to use the fire hose.  It was very powerful. 

Parent Resources

By Collective worship, Community, PSHE, Religious Education

Today many of our children came to school asking questions about Ukraine. For this reason, in collective worship we talked about worries and the importance of sharing these worries with people that we trust.

Here are some reading resources to help parents think about how they can support children with what they are seeing or feeling during these challenging times.
